Lineups, with Flores

Here's a dose of good news. Jesus Flores's sprained right knee, which had him listed as day-to-day, isn't going to keep him from the lineup. He said he feels fine today. Even yesterday when he had an MRI, the catcher said today, he still felt fairly good.

"They were treating me like I was hurt," Flores said. "I was like, Why? Why do I have to do all that stuff? MRIs, X-rays? I'm OK!"

And so he is.


Bonifacio - 4
Harris - 7
Zimmerman - 5
Milledge - 8
Belliard - 6
Flores - 2

Kearns hitting 7th? Maybe Manny has realized something.

Kearns 7th - it's about time. Flores has earned the right to a higher spot in the order and Kearns has earned his right to be dropped.

Oh my. Now I have nothing to complain about!

Manny has seen the light! Lets see if Austin can be more productive without the 4 hole pressure..

Attaboy, Jesus!

I'll Second That: Don't worry, somebody will come up with something else to complain about. ;-)

I love ole' Fat Belly, but any team that starts him at SS and hits him 5th.. is a bad team. Go Nats.

This "day-to-day" stuff wih so-called minor injuries is a farce. The season is lost so why not put Guzman on the DL and call up a passable subsitute at shortstop? The way this roster is handled is a joke. One of the reasons I was hoping Bellyard was going to LA is so that the Nats could get someone back who can actually play SS.

lessee...the nats sign guzman to a $16 million extension. then he suffers a so-called "minor" injury that has caused belly-ard and orr to play SS for most of the past week. to top that off, he's hitting like .167 since signing the deal. if this isn't natsluck, i don't know what is.

The Nats' lineup only strikes fear in the Nats' fans. Can Kearns bat 10th? Maybe we should go with 8 players and have a vacant sign a SS. It would be sick to endure all this losing and have the Padres or Mariners lose more games and get Strasburg. Whew, I fell better now.
